Tokyo Everyday – An Exhibition by Eva Kelly

1:00pm – 7:00pm
Free

Pen, ink and paper trace artist Eva Kelly’s journey through various locations in the vast urban landscape of Tokyo. Taking inspiration from psychogeography that emphasises playfulness and ‘drifting’ around urban environments, her intention is to communicate this unique experience through drawing. In these snapshots of everyday life in Tokyo, people and place are intertwined offering new perspectives on daily life.

Kelly is a Dublin based freelance illustrator. Her work is inspired by observations from travel, everyday life, people and city scenes. Her distinctive style focuses on composition, vivid colours and energetic lines. Creating a sense of play and curiosity is at the heart of her practice. She works on editorial commissions, collaborative projects and galleries.

The exhibition runs from the 22nd to the 25th of August, and there will be an opening reception including a Q&A on the 24th from 6pm – 9pm.
